WOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO

We've reached the point of 50 members on the Forums Smile WOW ... Little did I think that when put this forum out there that there would be 5 much less 50 people out there that lurv Shinkai as much as me. Awesome!

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed to the discussions on the Forum. You all rock!

The First contest will be over at the end of this month. I'll get out a Poll soon and have the final tally towards the end of July. The winner will get a Shinkai related prize (DVD, etc.).

Thanks everyone!
Laz

Congradulations everyone! *Looks around for a female in the forum.* Hmmm...
Junpei

Wow, you are so right. I've been taking each new member for granted and didn't realise until now a solid 40 others have signed up to this forum after me.

Haha, I guess Shinkai's animations are more directed at males. Well you can see in most, if not all, of his stories are in favour of males, if that's how you said it... What I mean is that these stories seem kind of like boyhood fantasies and dreams, things we find beautiful, to probably the majority of the audiences.
Janny

Congrats to us, I guess!  Very Happy Judging by the member list I'm not the only girl around here, so Shinkai has other fan girls, hurray!
Laz

We also seem to be low on Tarsians and Cats ... hmmmm ... better start advertising for some soon Wink
Junpei

Mhmm, more cats needed. Smile
Nick

Awesome. Congrats, Laz.

I don't understand your joke haha!
Laz

The joke is that we are predominately male ... with some females ... but we also don't have any Tarsians or cats on the boards either.
Phantast

Nice! It's great that so many people have joined! Very Happy

So... Am I still the youngest member? :p
Junpei

I don't think we know all our exact ages so I'm not sure Phantast, unless we all shout them out now. =P

EDIT: And by exact, I mean the day, month and year. Yes correct, your age will be exposed to everyone here. Muahaha...
Nick

SEVENTEEN!!!!

I'm the Old Geezer at 47. Maybe I should change my username to "Old Geezer." I even have glasses and a mustache like the guy from Paniponi. Sorry, no pocket protector, though.

I actually thought you wrote the Tenmon music analysis as a high school student.. I guess it's hard to tell someone's age over the net.. You have my respect for liking anime as an adult, you're so cool!

I'm sorry to get offtopic like this, but I think it's just awesome that we have people of different ages here, we got variety unlike many other discussion boards. Wink
Junpei

Which is why this forum is a great place to discuss our interests.

I also thought you were a high school student gleowine. Hehe.

I'm quite young myself, turning 17 in September. Smile
Maltos

I think i'm gonna be the forum young 'un.
16 in a week or so.
Nick

Here's what really sucks (Australian's might understand a little better) - I turn 18 the day after I get back from schoolies...

Which just means I have to get a fakey, which I've arranged.

But still...

EDIT: YEEEEW! LYSITHIA!! I just wanna thank all the great people at CBF forums for this achievement - in particular Laz. Couldn't have done it without you, guys.
chowb321

already 18
Laz

WOW Gleo ... I thought I was the oldest one here (39.5).

For those of us older folks, especially in the States ... I went to a great panel at Otakon this weekend called "Old Farts Anime" ... it was a bunch of folks about my age talking about the anime we watched as kids. I'll talk about it more in my Otakon thread. I had forgotten so much that I'd watched. Anyway ... Older Otaku Unite! Smile

Laz
Junpei

Wow, I would sure love to one day, a couple decades later, talk to others  around my age about the anime we watched as young folks. I can already feel it.
Nick

Hmm that got off-topic, fast.

Anyway Laz, what are you gonna do with your other site? Any big plans for the future?
Laz

I still have the url (cherryblossomsfalling.com) and I guess I'll just have a redirect from that to here. It's a little easier to remember than cheryblossomsfalling.myfastforum.org. The people who manage myfastfourms have made it a little tricky for folks to redirect (they want you to use their own service). I'll get that redirect in there some day Smile
